Review by admireArt
3 stars "Departed Glories", BIOSPHERE's 12th album, 2016, touches on those folk tale lands which actually do exist but are too rural and culturally remote from our usual plastic, concrete and perfectly wireless boxes.

Of course Geir Jenssen (BIOSPHERE), has a close geographical connection to these frozen and enchanted lands, being born in north-Norway and residing there where, as his BANDCAMP bio describes, composes most of his releases.

OK. Enough geography for today!

Short electronic soundscapes which sound like sections or parts of longer compositions. Some are too brief to go anywhere and sadly they go nowhere. Too many tracks for so few highlights and these are lost in the crowd diminishing the probabilities of going through all the album to relive them again.

To be honest, I feel disappointed by the lack of teeth most of these compositions show. Even the nostalgic moods seem bland .

At least he does not fall for cliches or rip-offs but in the belle-arts that is not enough it is only the beginning.

Anyway, BIOSPHERE has many great releases this is not one of them.

***3 "flat, flat" PA stars.
